The second in the Twilight Sessions series. This is very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound, but with a dub edge. Each piece starts as a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of where the music will go. Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay. These loops can be quite long, so as a performer I can add notes as I see fit, but only have a... Topics: bing, satellites, twilight, sessions, ambient, live, chill, dub, experimental

This is a fantastic album. Cover art by Herman Tascioglu.
